8:40 am on 4 July 2012

The interim Prime Minister of Fiji Commodore Frank Bainimarama says economic growth in the country is promising.

Commodore Bainimarama says the country's current gross domestic product rating of 2.7 percent and the positive economic outlook is a clear indication of the commitment and passion of all sectors of the community in contributing towards Fiji's progress.

He says despite the financial constraints which resulted from floods earlier this year, key sectors including Fisheries, Forestry, the Mining and Tourism continue to deliver promising benchmarks which have seen recent improvements in Fiji's national financial status.

The interim regime says the imminent opening of Fiji Missions in Korea and Abu Dhabi will further generate opportunities for economic growth with other Non-Aligned Nations as part of Fiji's Look North Policy.
